A new beta version of Adobe’s Flash Player is now available for Mac and Windows with a particular emphasis on OS X, featuring support for Mavericks and Mac .pkg installations.

Currently in beta, the new Adobe Flash Player 11.9.900.85 has been “tested against the latest developer releases of OS X 10.9 […] ensuring that Flash Player continues to perform as expected,” according to Adobe Systems.

With the new beta, Flash can now be installed via a .pkg (package) installer native to Macintosh platforms.

Adobe says the reason behind this move is to make deploying and updating Flash Player an easier task for system administrators worldwide.

“We’re introducing a new .pkg installer format for our distribution partners so we can reduce their workload by allowing them to deploy Flash Player for Mac using their current tools and environments,” according to the company.

On Windows platforms, the same update delivers only “new features for browser-based viewing of expressive content.”
